Thanks Homebird. It's been fantastic to see the rain return.

Great photo! The raindrops are nice, too! :>)

I'm so disappointed with mine, it never bloomed this year at all!

What a shame, Andy. Conditions just not quite right? Sometimes it's hard to figure out just what goes on with some plants.

Most likely because it's still in a pot. I think it would prefer to be in the ground. It should have been fertilized, too.

Yeah, I think that might be it. I've never had any luck with Hibiscus growing in pots. They are earth-friendly!

They definitely like to be in the ground...as they have a lot of feeder roots.

Yes they sure do, which makes it difficult to plant anything underneath them.

Yes, that's for sure.
